UNOFFICIAL MINUTES

CLEARWATER RIVER WATERSHED DISTRICT

WORK SESSION

STANLEY’S RESTAURANT, KIMBALL

August 25, 2004 - 6:00 pm

 

CRWD Work Session was called to order at 6:00p.m. by Manager Liebrenz.  Managers’ Virl Liebrenz, Marvin Brunsell, Bob Schiefelbein, Mark Kampa, and Dennis Loewen were present.  Also in attendance was Administrator Merle Anderson.

 

Oath of Office was administered to Dennis Loewen.

 

Administrator Anderson reviewed a change order for the Clearwater Harbor Area Sanitary Sewer Project that includes jacking of a sleeve through County Road 144 rather than an open cut for the sewer line. This change was required by the Stearns County Highway Department. Another component of the change order is to install a split rail fence rather than planting shrubs on the perimeter of the treatment system for this project. Total change in cost increase because of this change order is $9,970.

 

Motion #WS04-08-01: Motion Loewen, seconded by Kampa to authorize Change Order #2 for Clearwater Harbor Area Sanitary Sewer Project.  The cost increase is $9,970. The complete change order is on file in the District Office. All Managers voted aye.

 

Administrator Anderson informed the Board of the following items relating to the Clearwater Harbor Area Sanitary Sewer Project that may need Board action at a future date:

ž                  Replacement of cement driveway slabs in the right of way

ž                  Cameron Liebrenz landscaping restoration

ž                  Re-plumbing under mobile home units

ž                  Reduction of grinder pumps by one

 

Manager Brunsell reviewed the 2005 Proposed CRWD Budget.  He and Administrator Anderson will provide managers prior to the next meeting, a packet detailing previous years’ budget information, Watkins Stormwater Study fund balance, Clearwater/Grass Lake Bog Fund balance, and itemized expenditures for 2004.

 

Manager Brunsell reviewed the Clearwater Harbor Area Sanitary Sewer Project assessment notice.

 

Administrator Anderson reported on the recent Cedar Lake Conservation Club annual meeting. Residents are concerned about the lakes’ water quality. When the CRWD 2004 water quality data has been compiled, the CRWD will host a meeting of DNR representatives, Wright County Soil & Water Conservation District representatives, and representatives from the Cedar Lake Conservation Club to determine strategies to improve water quality in Cedar Lake.

 

Administrator Anderson requested that he attend a Southside Township Board Meeting to discuss wastewater treatment issues near lakes in the CRWD.

 

All managers signed bank signature cards.

 

Motion #WS04-08-02: Motion Kampa, seconded by Brunsell to adjourn. All Managers voted aye.
